Vanquish Yachts in the Netherlands has released the designs for a sensational new
powerboat, the VQ75 Veloce. This high-speed work of art reinforces the growing
reputation of #vanquish as a boutique yard that offers a unique range of highly
customisable Dutch motoryachts to clients who demand supreme comfort, awesome
agility and irresistible looks.
The success of #vanquish Yachts over the past three years has rested not only on its proven
ability to deliver superlative powerboats. The Dutch yard and its founder Tom Steentjes have
also been highly successfully in attracting clients who are looking to challenge the norms of
motoryachting and raise the bar in every respect. Designed in partnership with Guido de Groot,
one of the leading lights of the Dutch #design industry, the new #vanquish VQ75 is a logical next
step for #vanquish owners and new clients alike in terms of both size and performance.
This scintillating new model builds on the streamlined shape of the recently launched and much
admired VQ48s and VQ50. The new model successfully combines these #vanquish family genes
with a new take on powerboating in this size range. As such, the VQ75 Veloce will be blessed
with unrivalled agility for a boat in the 75-foot class and be fully customisable.
Bridging the gap
The VQ75 Veloce is available both as an open dayboat and as a closed version, with a large
transparent sunroof that opens all the way. It has plenty of layout options as well as several
possibilities in terms of motorisation. As on all #vanquish yachts, there will be plenty of areas to
socialise, sunbathe or relax. A special feature of the VQ75 Veloce, however, will be the option
to stay on board for longer periods thanks to the addition of an owner, VIP and two guest cabins
or a crew cabin.
The new model therefore bridges the gap between the VQ48/VQ50 and the VQ90 #design which
was unveiled earlier this year and is already attracting a great deal of interest. A major
difference with the VQ90, however, is that the VQ75 Veloce can easily be sailed by just two
people, removing the need for a crew and making it ideal for a couple. If a crew cabin is added
and the galley is separated from the guests’ quarters, the boat becomes exceptionally well
suited to chartering. The flexible layout can even be arranged in a way that allows space for a
garage to house a VQ16 water scooter.
Unrivalled technical solutions
The VQ75 Veloce comes with surface drives to guarantee the 50-knot top speed that makes it
one of the fastest motoryachts in its category. A non-Veloce version of the VQ75 is also
available with a less powerful engine configuration, still offering a top speed of around 40 knots.
Its low resistance, easily driven hull #design makes for convenient acceleration. The hull is a
further development on the highly successful VQ48, an open sports boat made famous by its
unerring capacity to keep passengers dry at all times: high and low speeds, quiet and rough
seas, strong or light winds.
The VQ75 will also benefit from the enormous attention #vanquish Yachts has paid to noise
insulation. This ensures minimal nuisance to other boat owners in the harbour and very little
noise penetrating into the sleeping quarters. The exceedingly stiff construction of the hull and
absence of contact between the interior and the hull thanks to the insulation will guarantee a
very comfortable stay on board. The latest stabilizer technology is an option that allows stability
and comfort to be optimised even at anchor.
